    Shuttle Inc., market leader in the mini-PC segment and manufacturer of Multi-Form-Factor solutions, today unveils a new XPC Barebone from the P2 model series building on Intel's X48 Express chipset. Specially designed for high performance systems, the XPC Barebone SX48P2 Deluxe is ideally suited for Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad processors with up to four cores.

    The XPC Barebone SX48P2 Deluxe is the first mini PC barebone ready to be equipped with DDR3 memory modules. A maximum capacity of eight Gigabytes on four sockets can be installed into this model. "The pioneering DDR3 memory technology promises more performance with less energy consumption and reduces heat development which is ideal for mini PCs," explains Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. Two PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots enable the use of high-end graphics cards with an ATI Radeon HD 4870 being supported as well.

    Also part of this performance class is the further enhanced equipment package.

Two Gigabit-LAN interfaces with load balancing and failover function on the rear are provided for fast networking. Two eSATA connectors with the appropriate power supply for external drives are also found at the back. To make sure this mini PC works smoothly under load in maximum configuration, a power supply certified for 80 PLUS with 450 Watt supplies all components with sufficient power. The digital 8-phase voltage transformer on the mainboard ensures this even with high level usage. This high-performance package is rounded off with Dolby Digital Live! and DTS Connect-certified 8-channel sound.

    Nice,would be a xfire squeeze though.

    How come x48 uses ich9r sb while p45 uses newer ich10r sb?

    Because the P45 came out after the X48, and the ICH10R wasn't available when the x48 came out. Though I would think switching over wouldn't hurt anything.

    It may support an HD4870, but with only a 450w power supply, I wouldn't risk it, and I certainly wouldn't try crossfire.

    Shuttle's kick ass!

    Don't be fooled by the 450W PSU, they're PSU are extremely efficient. I was running 2 HDDs, an optical drive, a X1950 Pro (& and then a 3850) a dual core CPU and 2GB of RAM. All that was running flawlessly on a 240W PSU.

    Weirdly, my SN95Gv3 was also a far better OC'er than my current two full sized ATX boards. Freakin' love Shuttles, I miss my dearly.

    450W... i'd assume its like corsair, giving an understated wattage rating unlike other manufacturers.

    Dual NICs.... X48. I'd chuck a HD4870 into one of these :D
